PSB portal change log

Hi,

 

We are now-a-days upgrading the PSB reseller portals to new release almost every second week. And as most of the features are seen in the new PSB portal with same pace by everyone, we have been asked to provide some sort of change log for each release. So as a starting point, we will announce each new release in this thread with change log for it.

 

All portals update with bit different schedules, so here are the links to verify which version of the new UI your portal is running:

We'll refer those version numbers in the change logs. First part of the version string matches with the "date" -field and the latter part after '-' the "revision" -field. Not yet really user friendly, but we'll improve it later.

 

Petri & rest of the fellows behind the new PSB portal.

 

PS. Main changes compared to old portal are:

- Everything is HTML5 based - also the profile editor. So no need for Java anymore.

- New company scope selector, more company focused model and  better task flows.

- More intuitive security management like handling of the profiles, polices and software patches.

- Support the new PSB Workstation Security 12.00 features like Web content control and Connection control.

Re: Remote fsdiag feature enabled in all PSB portals since 12.3.2019

Dear Mr. Petri Kuikka,

 

- Please also introduce remote file sample submission, as I have great difficulty reporting false malware alarms in FSAV PSB, owing to the difficulty of collecting binary samples within such a dispersed computer population. I'm afraid that feature wish, while already registered, may remain in the developer's limbo list forever.

 

We are going to introduce remote quarantine management feature fairly soon and sample submission feature may be possible to implement in that scope. I will check if that's possible.

Woudn't that be nice if you could submit false positive from portal from the "Infections" list?

Release 201604040305-7398791 change log

Release 201604040305-7398791

 

General changes:

  • Separate Software Updates pie on home page. Protection status pie does not anymore count missing software updates as red and yellow warning. This protection status pie change is also done for old portal, but we won't add there the own Software Updates -pie.
  • Device listings (and most other listings) are now more compact – more data on a screen, little less scrolling.
  • Unnecessary device pictures are removed from home page to fit more relevant data on a screen, computer and mobile device amounts are with the pies and hovers are also added to the pies.
  • ”Sometimes empty page after login” bug is fixed.
  • UI logging the user out accidentally should happen a lot less now (there migth still be something to fix with this later)
  • ”Security level” has been replaced everywhere with ”firewall profile” and ”internet shield” with ”firewall” (but sorry! Localizations come a little late and will be correct in other languages in the next release).
  • First time login info message is now shown with correct user selected language.

New profile editor changes:

  • “Disable Windows Firewall, on/off” –settings is now in Firewall settings (switch disabling off to enable usage of Microsoft Direct Access); one of the missing settings that may have given some reason to need the full mode profile editor.
  • Improved usability for the Add service button in the Firewall tab.

So far we have added following settings from old full mode profile editor to new profile editor:

  • Added "Allow local uninstall of F-Secure products" as a new setting in the General category (but sorry! For this feature to work properly there is actually a 2nd setting that needs to be either added or changed in all PSB profiles. We'll let you know later when this truly works for everyone.)
  • Add "Enable WMI Provider" as a new setting in the General category
  • “Disable Windows Firewall, on/off” –settings is now in Firewall settings

Re: Release 201604040305-7398791 change log

The new software updates pie is a nice addition.

 

One thing that I think could be improved with this is the fact that currently, any clients that have the Software Updates feature disabled are classed as "Up-To Date". I think this is a little dangerous. In my opinion, if the machine hasn't been scanned and confirmed up-to date, then I should assume that it is not up-to date.

 

For machines that have this feature disabled in the profile, I would prefer to see them reported as not up-to date, or have them excluded from the data.

General changes:

  • Downloads section is now available from login page without need to login to the portal.
  • Partner is able to list devices over companies to find certain types of computers and make operations to them. Just select the "List view" mode from devices listing on partner level.

  • Subscription key is now shown in own column in the subscription listing.
  • "Service partner" -management is implemented to level that you can manage the service partner accounts. Unfortunately we ran out of time for this release to add the "associate/disassociate" -company feature. This will be brought in with next release.
  • Company registration wizard now creates properly the user with the selected language.
  • Partner search: selection is reset when switching categories -bug is fixed.
  • Mobile device details: Wrong Overall protection statuses and icons -bug is fixed.

New profile editor changes:

  • New profile editor now has the full helps for editing the tables. So the help is telling what needs to be inserted to each of the row and column.

So far we have added following settings from old full mode profile editor to new profile editor:

  • Added "Allow local uninstall of F-Secure products" as a new setting in the General category (but sorry! For this feature to work properly there is actually a 2nd setting that needs to be either added or changed in all PSB profiles. We'll let you know later when this truly works for everyone.)

  • “Disable Windows Firewall, on/off” –settings is now in Firewall settings

PS. @NickJ - we are thinking on more improvements on how to handle the computers with disabled software updater. No promises yet on how we will do it.

PS.. Reset password emails did not work properly from old portal in previous releases. They are now fixed to work correctly again.
PS... Almost half of all profiles in PSB reseller portals have been already migrated to use the profile editor in new portal. So if you are just using the simple profile editor, no need to wait anymore for confirmation that new profile editor works correct - it does! So go and migrate your profiles now.

Release 201605040306-1c52686

 

General changes:

  • Partner Home page now has a warning and link to the subscriptions expiring in next 60 days so it is easy to find and renew them.
  • Partner level Subscription page has changed to use by default the "Valid subscriptions" -filter. So only companies with valid subscriptions are shown there.
  • Bug where refreshing the page with CTRL-R or F5 changed the language  from the defined one to English is now fixed.
  • Non authentication pages like login page and password reset pages are now shown in localized languages properly (on IE this depends on region and language of your OS).
  • Service partner management feature is now fully available. You can move companies to service partners and back to the solution provider. This has been changed also so, that if the move operation causes some orphan profiles, it will warn that these will be deleted.
  • Added "unknown" -name for computers without any identification information so that you can access their details. Unfortunately this also removed the whole Waiting for connection state for some of the computer. Sorry for that and we'll fix it in next releases.
  • Following smaller bug fixes:
    • APNS certificate vanishes from SOP account view, if you reload the page
    • Mobile device user editing doesn't activate 'Save' button, if there is something wrong in the original data.

    • Removing devices from partner search is not working.

New profile editor changes:

  • Manual/scheduled scanning priority can be set to low or normal.
  • SWUP: installation time dropdown items order is now corrected.

So far we have added following settings from old full mode profile editor to new profile editor:

  • "Allow local uninstall of F-Secure products" in the General category. This setting is now being fixed to work properly. To take it into use, you need to republish the profile that uses this setting.
  • "Enable WMI Provider" -setting in the General category
  • “Disable Windows Firewall, on/off” -setting in the Firewall category
  • "Enable normal priority scanning" -setting in the Manual scanning category

Release change log 20160615163209_5a401eb

Release 20160615163209_5a401eb
After 5 weeks we finally released new version with few big changes inside.

  1. Totally new sales item: Freedome for Business with 3rd party MDM support. This is perfect for organizations that want to provide additional security for their mobile devices on top of the basic security features that their existing MDM solution already provides. Official release for this will happen on 29th of June.

  2. Subscriptions and computer search now moved to new search engine. This speeds up searches, allow us to change the search limit from the minimum of 3 characters to 2 (coming in next release) and make more columns being searchable.

    Please go try out this new search, as it is quite huge internal change and one thing that is really hard to test fully - people just come up in so many ways to search items that we cannot simulate all of them.  Any feedback is welcome.

  3. New settings added to New Profile Editor that were available in Full mode only:
    • Excluded applications aka NIF exclusions under Scanning exclusion category
    • Http proxy settings for automatic update agent under General settings category
    • Http proxy settings for software updater under Software updater category
    • Scan on system startup under Software updater category
    • SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 ports under Email scanning category
    • Fixed the Browsing Protection: 'Block access when web site is rated harmful' setting to work as it should
  4. Totally new way of filtering devices from the devices list view. This will help you to perform the operations on the desired set of devices. User can apply up to three filters. Filtering is done in key value pair. For the first release, the filtering includes only seven filtering keypoints. In coming months more columns would be added. You can open filters with button filter.PNG located before search field.  See the picture to get more detailed idea about this feature.
    filters.PNG

  5. Link to Change Log in Suppport section added.
  6. Profile Editor's add new profile and table row edit have a separate Save button. This was done to fix a problems in entering Japanese characters with IME.
  7. Welcome email for end user installation and Create/Renew APN certificate e-mails have been updated to new look and feel.

  • "Enable WMI Provider" -setting in the General category
  • Http proxy settings for automatic update agent under General settings category
  • "Enable normal priority scanning" -setting in the Manual scanning category
